and cities in the region. at this stage everyone is confident that the staging process, the positioning of resources, commodities, and equipment that will be needed to respond to the storm are in place. as craig has emphasized, this has not made landfall yet. we do not yet know where it will hit, where we're going to see the biggest impacts. that is exactly why it is so important for us to respond big and fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank all of the members of the team for the outstanding work they're doing, but the other thing that makes this storm unique is that we anticipate it will be slow moving. meaning it may take a long time not only to clear, but to get, for example, power companies back in to clear out the trees and put things back in place so that folks can start moving back home. my main message to everyone involved is that we have to take this seriously. the federal government is working effectively with state and local governments. it will be very important that populations in the impacted states take this seriously, listen to your state and local

under control in the city. arson in the country. these guys are laid off. about two weeks later, 100 guys are retired. when you look to find out where that money came from, it was the department of homeland security. they have a fund for things like that. i do not want to overstate but that is something you want to think about. the department of homeland security did step in and out to keep detroit as safe as it can be for the moment. it could be a lot safer. we're talking about, i wonder -- we have seen the auto industry bailout. the bank bailout. are we heading into an era of bailouts of cities? is there a thing as it failed city? what's more with "detropisa"'s co-director. what c-span is asking high school and middle school students to send a message to the president and ask what is the most important issue -- consider in 2013? for a chance to win $5,000. c-span's student cam video competition is open to students rate six through 12. the deadline is january 18, 2013. former governor tommy thompson faced tammy baldwin in their third and final debate for wisconsin u.s. senate seat.

of chicago, i watched my own father make that same uncomplaining journey every day to his job at the city water plant. i saw how he carried himself with that same dignity, you know? that same pride in being able to provide for us. that same hope that his kids would one day have opportunities he never dreamed of. now, how many people do we know like that in our lives? you know?
